Kalpana comes to MSA Ethos every morning on the factory bus as she lives with her in-laws, husband and her son in the neighboring city of Vadodara. Prior to joining MSA Ethos, Kalpana used to work with her mother-in-law at home on household tasks and local tailoring work. She heard about MSA Ethos by word of mouth and was told that it was an excellent opportunity to work as an operator in a space with great energy. She wanted a career opportunity where she could be a productive contributor of a craft she was already familiar with. With her mother-in-law's blessings and support to leave home for work, she is able to supplement her family's income.
